Pours a little darker than the average cola. This off-white head that fades to a ring. Sparse lacing. Nose is toffee with some coffee hints. Maybe a little covfefe. Taste is on the sweet side; notes of molasses. Quite drinkable, although not a favorite. EvanFriend (627) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 15, 2017
Taste of coffee mainly, a hint of a metallic aftertaste (poured from a can). A little thin on the palate. Not my favorite, but not bad really. tfontana (1088) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - APR 7, 2017
Can pour into shaker pint glass from Greg & Jane’s Beer and Wine. Appearance is dark brown with mahogany, negligible tan head with poor retention and no lacing. Aroma is rich, dark roasted malts like burnt toast with hints of coffee and dark chocolate. Taste is strong mix of sweet and bitter roasted malts, coffee, earth, dark chocolate. Palate is medium bodied with thick, smooth texture, soft carbonation and balanced sweet and bitter finish. Overall, strong aroma and taste and a nice palate. gripweed57 (2796) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - MAR 20, 2017
12 ounce can. Translucent cola brown color. Small creamy beige head. Rich roasted malt nose. Hints of earth and dark bread. Flavor has dark malt and licorice notes. Light bodied and chewy mouthfeel. Some coffee notes in finish. A touch of resiny hops in finish. Very approachable and easy drinking. demannu (451) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 4, 2017
Not going to go into great details here. While this beet its not going to blow you away with super rich bold flavors, it is a very nice porter that delivers all the right notes without going over the top. Very enjoyable and extremely drinkable. Ill bee visiting this again for sure.

DATE: February 17, 2017... OCCASION: watching Pirates of the Caribbean with the family; coming from a sampler twelve pack... ... GLASSWARE: Barley Creek pint... dark as night to start, as expected, but unfortunately the body scares away its head... what is left is a white ring... as humble as the appearance may be, the robust coffee aroma elicits great promise... a return of slight vanilla, peat, and anise... zero lacing doesn’t feed the eyes... feels like flat cola going down--not to riff on the "humble" aspect, but not demanding a second sip... thin and slick, oily to a fault... the coffee is the most recognizable taste, but that is not saying much... the vanilla and peat are barely extant.... the overall experience is not one that I will seek to repeat... useful enough to accompany a winter’s night... malrubius (2984) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - DEC 26, 2016
Can from Brewtopia. Near black with tan ring. Lightly toasted nutty chocolate aroma. Toasted chocolate raisin fig nutty sweetness with some woody spice in the mild clean finish. Light body oily. Seems traditional enough. Good. kchampagne (173) - Jacksonville, Florida, USA - DEC 7, 2016
Picked this one up at Berts Better Beer shop in Hooksett, NH. Pours out a dark opaque brown with a tan head. Aroma is roasted dark malts, coffee, and dark chocolate. Some sweetness on the nose as well. Taste follows the same composition. This is a no frills kind of porter, which makes it a nice classic beer to enjoy. I like this one a lot. gsmitty80 (2130) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 8, 2015
Very good porter that was smooth drinking and sweet but not to the ends of a sweet stout. Good mating kept it balanced. bluejacket74 (1993) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - MAR 5, 2015
22 ounce bottle, Winter 2014 batch. Served in a nonic pint glass, the beer pours very dark brown with about an inch tan head. Head retention and lacing are both pretty good. The brew smells like roasted malt, coffee, and chocolate. The taste is similar to the aroma, but there’s the addition of some vanilla, nuts and woodiness. Nice balance between the sweet and bitter flavors. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s creamy, coating and smooth. It’s easy enough to drink. I think it’s a very enjoyable porter! I liked it a lot, and at $5.99 a bomber I certainly wouldn’t have any problems with buying this brew again. Definitely worth a try if you’ve never had it before.
